Topic: The Guarantee of Stability
SCRIPTURE: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you know determines your stability in life.
MESSAGE: It is crucial to understand that one of the most powerful forces on earth is KNOWLEDGE. Both the right and the wrong kind of knowledge are powerful. The right knowledge has a transforming power but the wrong knowledge has a destructive power. When Adam and Eve got to know that they had eaten the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, the fruit that God told them not to eat, they were instantly ruined. On the other hand, when the disciples of Jesus knew Jesus as Christ, the Saviour of the world, and also had the knowledge of His Word, they were transformed.
Now, let us see how powerful the right knowledge is.
The right knowledge is key to stability in life. Isaiah 33:6 says, And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times…. So, knowledge gives stability. As a child of God, a business person, civil servant, pastor, etc., what you know determines your stability in life.
The reason many Christians are tossed to and fro by different doctrines from the pit of hell is the lack of the knowledge of God’s Word.
If anyone tells me that he has seen Jesus a thousand times, I will not doubt him, but if he says that the “Jesus” he saw said something that is contrary to the scripture, I will discard his words no matter how spiritual he claims to be. God never breaks His Word or His principles. Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional August 6, 2017
Ignorance, therefore, facilitates instability. An ignorant person is an easily shakable and moveable person.
Remember this: What you know determines your stability in life.
1. Study the Bible carefully in order to avoid the wave of deception that is moving in our world today.
2. Crave to know God and His Purpose for your life.
3. Be knowledgeable in your career.
